Record Breaking Art Class

And raises over £50,000 for charities fighting against you know what.

More than 45,000 people from around the world joined Rob Bidduplh for a live art lesson. Rob is a children’s author and illustrator from the UK and in his livestream he taught the audience how to draw a blue whale.

With his stream, Rob set a world record for the largest online art lesson and raised over £50,000 for charities fighting the COVID-19 pandemic, donations for which included a winning auction bid of £970 for the teacher’s own whale picture.

The Guinness World Records required 10,000 unique users to actively participate in the lesson for the record to be set – a target which has now been confirmed was smashed by four times by participants from Europe, Asia and beyond, surpassing Biddulph's wildest dreams.

“When I first started the #DrawWithRob classes back in March I had no idea they’d lead to a Guinness World Records title – but here we are!” said Mr Biddulph. “The support I’ve received from everyone – kids, parents, grandparents and beyond – has been overwhelming," the artist told Shropshire Star.

All those that attended the class are to receive a digital certificate from Guinness World Records for taking part.
